Needs better instructions Should be simple but it's incomprehensible. There's a button called "set". Set what? "Swap key states". Huh? Asks for readings. Which ones? Kun readings I guess, since it's using hiragana. This app needs to explain better exactly what you're trying to do.

Does the job but room for improvement. A good lightweight app for testing your knowledge of elementary kanji, though better for assessing how well you've learned than actually learning. Could be improved by remembering which grade you've chosen and your input setting between sessions. Some stats on how your accuracy rate has changed over time might also be nice.

Not detailed enough It often doesn't list the all the readings and there is no distinction between On and Kun readings. Also having examples wouldn't hurt. So inconclusive and of poor quality.

Best program for Kanji learning This program is straight forward to use (I can use any free moments), and the score tracking to measure my progress - I think if it as my "kanji game"! Hands-down this is the best program. I've been learning Japanese for a couple of years, and proficient with hirigana/katakana - but have struggled with many approaches to learning kanji. It'd be even more useful if the authors could repeat your challenging characters more often, maybe even including a mode to focus on your problematic characters.
